To bee or not to bee. Did you know there are beehives on campus and a garden in which food is grown? This is your chance to learn more during the Campus Tour with Bob the Gardener and Rinske the Beekeeper.

Industrial agriculture has radically modified land use globally, pressuring Climate Goals but also among others the lives of pollinating insects. Is it possible to save (wild) bees while growing food? And how can we act more circular when gardening food? During this session Rinske Kreukniet (Bee the Change) will take you on a journey into the lives of bees. How do bees live in a hive and why are they threatened with extinction? And why are bees important for our ecosystem? If the weather is good enough you will get the chance to look into one of the beehives or you can make an insect hotel to improve the biodiversity on campus! Bob ter Haar (Edible EUR) provides insight into ecological food production and tells all about gardening options in the city. Can a more ecologic approach save nature? The crossovers explored between bees and food also provide an opportunity to become familiar with the Campus Garden initiative.

If it rains very badly, this programme will be held inside. You’ll be informed.
